I’ve been fighting the good fight through a cold the last couple of days. What started as allergies causing trouble at a party Saturday night — the presence of a giant lab who kicked up enough allergens to make me miserable — has pretty much now turned into a full-blown head cold.
When you are going through a two-kleenex-box cold, the inevitable end result is a chapped face between your nose and your mouth. This can only mean one thing: is Carmex Time!
Like Miller Time, only more soothing than refreshing, Carmex Time is that moment when you rub the wax-colored balm on. Within hours, you’re completely good. Its magic stuff, it really is.
The stuff used to come in a ceramic bottle, and cost $1.19. Now it comes in a cheap plastic container, and its costs a dime more — $1.29. Weird. Its manufactured in Wisconsin, and comes in a characteristic yellow-capped bottle.
